Video Competition

Each year a video competition is held to showcase MRSEC-related research in a short video. Any Brandeis-affiliated undergraduate, graduate student, post-doc, staff or faculty member is eligible to enter and make a video about Brandeis-MRSEC research. 

2021 Video Competition Now Open

The MRSEC is hosting its Fourth Annual Video Competition. Any Brandeis-affiliated undergraduate, graduate student, post-doc, staff, or faculty person can submit a 90-second that showcases MRSEC-related research by July 13, 2021, and possibly win a prize. For competition details and to submit your video, please use this Entry form.

The top three videographers will be announced shortly after the deadline. Past prizes have included MacBooks, iPads, and Wacom tablets. Now is your chance to use your best videography skills to share exciting MRSEC-related findings with the world!
